NYP competitors are flying off for WorldSkills
Published on 23 Sep 2022
Our 11 intrepid competitors are off to the WorldSkills Competition 2022 Special Edition, forming the lion’s share of the 29-member contingent representing Singapore.
They have trained for many months to hone their skills before heading to countries like Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Korea over Oct and Nov.
The competitors had a send-off ceremony with PCEO and senior management who wished them well at a tea session on Mon, 19 Sep. The day after, they met Education Minister Chan Chun Sing, together with other members of the Team Singapore contingent. Minister Chan and Tan Kok Yam, chairman, WorldSkills Singapore Council and chief executive, SSG passed the flags to two Team SG team captains; one of whom is Elizabeth Lee, our Diploma in Nursing student competing in Health & Social Care.
Says Graphic Design Technology competitor Lau En Qi, who will be going to Aarau, Switzerland: “I’ve been practising hard, doing simulated competition scenarios each day. I’ve learnt to stay focused, despite competition stress. I look forward to going to Switzerland to learn more about the creative works of other competitors. I also hope to make new friends from other countries.”
We wish our competitors all the best!!
